    Default New to bulldogs...

    Hi! my name is Alicia,my family (3 kids,2 labs,1EB, 1 showpig, 1 heifer and of course the husband ) live in Nacogdoches,TX. I have seen and heard tons of horror stories about EB, being on here and looking around I have realised most are just from uninformed "parents". I am quite sure I will have a bunch of questions as I've only had labs, and a mini dachshund(RIP Link). Link is the reason we came to have Domino in our family....we were taking the pig somewhere and Link got out, chased us down the road, and was hit by a car. His passing devestated my boys (2 and 4). We were at Canton with my MIL and the boys saw her. They had to have her! I know, never buy from a vendor....but so far we have been blessed, no real problems, I investigated the kennel she came from, and the breeder on her papers....did not find any complaints. My vet is not comfortable with Bulldogs, she said she would treat her for the normal stuff(heartworm,flea and tick meds,...etc) you know routine but she suggested that if anything ever happened I have her already set up with a vet that "knows" bulldogs.. she suggested one in Houston but i would prefer a little closer like Longview or Tyler area! Thanks I know I ramble...sorry

    Welcome! At least your vet was honest about finding a good bulldog vet. I like her already! @lexyerwayne is in Tyler, maybe she can help guide you to a good vet.

    Welcome to the site. I don't know any vets in or around East Texas but while it may be a drive if you can't find one up around your neck of the woods we do have 2 excellent bully vets in Houston that we take Harlea to and she loves them as much as we do.
    Bulldogs are like potato chips. You just can't stop with one.

    I can't wait to see photos! I have fond memories of Canton, but it was a very long time ago!

    Welcome Alicia and Domino. I think it's great your vet warned you ahead of time to get a vet familiar with Bully's! Sounds like you have great advice already! Hope you enjoy the forum!
